|Karen Graham joined fast growing Story Homes as PR and Communications advisor and within weeks was on the move again to the company’s new offices at Carlisle’s Kingmoor Business Park.
As she settles in to Story Homes, she will be focussing on PR, social media and internal communications for the entrepreneurial family business’s staff of over 150 across Cumbria, Lancashire, NE England and Scotland.
The award winning company has set itself the ambitious target of becoming one of the UK’s top ten house builders and is poised to achieve this, after doubling the number of homes built and sold in the past two successive years.
Karen, who joins Story Homes from Cumbria University’s Marketing Department, is equally ambitious. Karen has passed the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Professional Certificate having already completed the Introductory Certificate with nesma. Her new boss, Tracy Calvert, is equally industrious and also studying for CIM qualifications with nesma.
Tracy Calvert, PR and Communications manager, said: “Karen has joined a small but dedicated team who juggle lots of promotional and reputational balls for a fast growing company. It’s an exciting opportunity for Karen to learn lots of new skills as she jumps from marketing to PR and the theory of her professional qualification with nesma has been a great grounding for this. Karen can confidently tackle internal marketing and social media with knowledge and experience, which comes across in her work.”
